Hi folks, I have come up with another new article on Google’s Speed Report. I know, you all like those websites or pages whose loading speed is too fast and gives you information or details in few seconds. Do you know anything about Google’s speed report or its performance score, etc.? This guide will help you to find the answer of these questions. So, keep reading the article till the end.

Let me start with the concept of Google’s page speed report first

Google page speed insights provide details on the performance of page speed on both mobile and desktop devices and offers recommendations on how that page can be improved.

Additionally, page speed insights offer details for the lab as well as filed data about a page. Lab data is used for correcting performance issues and filed data is used for capturing true, real-world user experience.

See the performance score of the speed

At the peak of the report, page speed insights (PSI) provide a score that describes the page’s performance. The score is determined by running Lighthouse to gather and examine lab data about the page. 90 or above is considered as fast score, 50-90 is considered moderate, and less than 50 is considered to be slow.

The new rolling speed report of Google

Beginning of this year, Google tested a new speed report within Google search console. Now Google is rolling out publically highly anticipated page speed reports in search console. This report officially previewed by Google in the month of May, but it was uncovered back in February.

Now that report has come out, so let’s take a deeper look into the report and see how site owners can take benefits from it.

What Google report says about speed, read out below

Google’s new page speed report gets data from the Chrome User Experience Report and instinctively accommodates URLs into the categories of “Fast”, Moderate”, and “Slow”. The report also identifies the issues causing slowdowns and further categorizes pages by grouping URLs with similar issues together.

Furthermore, the place of speed report is under the “Enhancements” section of the Google search console which helps the webmaster quickly find the speed performance issues.

What does Google recommend this report?

As per Google’s recommendations, “you can use this report both for monitoring your performance over time and for tracking fixes you made to your website if you fix an issue you can use this report to track whether users experienced a performance improvement when browsing the fixed version of your website”.

Further, Google says,” this report is currently ‘experimental’ in the sense that it will be revised and improved upon over time. However, unlike typical Google experiments, this report will be rolling out to everyone”.

So, folks, Google will share more details on the report and how you can improve the speed of the pages by linking you over to the page speed insight tool. Keep updating yourself with new updates of Google through our blog post till then get in touch with us.
